to judy. >> woodruff: president obama wrapped up his post-state of the union tour with a visit to his hometown today. margaret warner has the story. >> warner: the president's trip to chicago came amid the country's new focus on gun violence. and while he was there to talk about raising the minimum wage and expanding preschool for children, the city's surge of gun killings wasn't far from his mind. >> last year, there were 443 murders with a firearm on the streets of this city, and 65 of those victims were 18 and under. so that's the equivalent of a newtown every four months. and that's precisely why the overwhelming majority of americans are asking for some common-sense proposals to make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun. >> warner: those 443 shooting deaths were among more than 500 homicides in chicago last year. and last month, 15-year-old hadiya pendleton, who had just performed during president obama's inauguration festivities in washington, was shot dead about a mile from the first family's chicago home. first lady michelle obama attended her funeral last weeke
party. >> paul: welcome to the journal editorial report. i'm paul gigot. that was president obama during his state of the union address, he called for a vast expansion, laying out a second term agenda that includes more spending on public works, a cap and trade program for carbon emissions, a minimum wage increase and a federal nursery school entitlement. so does the president think he can get any of this passed or is he counting on a pelosi congress in 2014? let's ask wall street journal columnest and deputy editor dan henninger, james freeman and washington columnist kim strassel. kim, how much does the president think he can pass or is that what this is about? >> no, he knows he can't pass his agenda, very little of this would make it through the republican house. that's in fact exactly the point. the goal here, which is a repeat of what he's done for the last two years, is to put out all of these measures which are somewhat pole driven and sound generally good to the public and he pitches them as helping the economy, and then when the republicans don't pass them or take them up, he w
growth, a rising thriving middle class. >> president obama delivered his fourth state of the union address tuesday. in attendance were senate and house members, six of the nine justices of the supreme court, the joint chiefs of staff, members of this cabinet and assorted dignitaries. over the course of one hour, the president unveiled proposals to boost the economy, help the middlal class, invest in the nation's aging infrastructure, create more high-tech manufacturing, a big emphasis, expand preschool education, up high school standards and make college more affordable >> nothing i'm proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime. it is not a bigger government we need, but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad-based growth. >> the president also appeals to congress to work together on climate change, immigration reform, and particularly on the phony issue of automatic government budget cuts known as sequestration. >> question. when former president clinton took the helm during an economic downturn, he said he had a quote laser-like focus on
found 14 failing solar companie that have already cost taxpayers over $3 billion. if president obama wants to play venture capitalist with taxpayer money, he should remember this: that the type of progress that rick is alluding to is in early stage r and d. it's not in giving huge vast sums of taxpayer money for companies to operate and tax credits forever. this is the big problem for obama. the private sector, which would buy these goods, doesn't want them. >> perfect example of that, morgan, is electric cars. they keep trying to fist electric cars on the american public. they don't want them. tesla has a new electric car. they have over $400 million in loan guarantees for the federal government. turns out, according to the "new york times," they don't deliver what they promise. >> yeah. i'm going to stay away electric that issue right now for a little bit. what i am gog say is, yes, we are seeing a lot of waste and i do think there is a lot of room to streamline that waste. but i don't think we should be cutting off all green spending. going back to president obama and what he pitc
word today from president obama. he's taking on the gop on the right fiscal course for the country. he released his weekly radio address and says it's time to finish the job of cutting the deficit by the goal of $4 trillion. >> i disagree with republicans who think we should do that by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training or medicare and social security benefits. that would force our senior citizens and working families to bear the burden of deficit reduction while the wealthiest are asked to do nothing more. that won't work. we can't just cut our way to prosperity. >> republicans aren't holding back in their gop address today. criticizing the president over the upcoming threat of sequestration. >> what the president failed to mention was that the sequester was his idea proposed by his administration during the debt limit negotiations in 2011. and now we in the house on behalf of our constituents are calling on the president to join us in replacing his sequester with better, more responsible spending cuts. >> joining me now, correspondent for the garden, an
this week, president obama said congress should get rid of tax breaks like this one. >> save hundreds of billions of dollars by getting rid of tax loopholes and deductions for the well off and the well connected. >> president obama has benefited tremendously from his popularity on social media and tax experts say that might be why he let's facebook get away with billion dollars tax breaks like this one. >> the president certainly had a double standard when it comes to picking out examples that help him advance his policy agenda. he often points to oil and gas companies taking questionable deductions, which are perfectly legal under the law. but he leaves out other companies like facebook that pay a low effective tax rate, but doesn't go after, again, which are perfectly legal and justified deductions, doesn't point them out and make them an example the same way does he in an industry like oil and gas. >> facebook got a $1 billion tax break in 2012. they carried over $2.2 billion in breaks to use in future years. so far facebook spokesperson has declined comment about the big tax brea
? >> absolutely. for two reasons, ali. first of all, president obama is in the sweet spot of his presidency, the moment of maximum leverage that occurs for a president right after re-election. basically around 18 months at the start of a second term where a president can push through almost anything he wants. second of all, he's positioned to pull a nixon in china. just as only a committed anti-communist like nixon could go to china, someone like president obama could appeal to his base and still get tough entitlement cuts through as part of a grand bargain. this is a moment of rare opportunity but it takes presidential leadership and there's been lacking. >> one approach that republicans have put forward is the idea of a balanced budget amendment. >> the real cause of our debt is that our government has been spending $1 trillion more than it takes in every year. that's why we need a balanced budget amendment. >> republicans, margaret, are not blameless in this, bush era tax cuts, wars in afghanistan and iraq are major drivers. the spending cuts that a balanced budget amendment would requir

was the middle class. president obama underlined that in his state of the union address as did republicans in their response. there is wide-spread agreement america needs to do more to ease the anxieties of middle class families. but as darren gersh reports, solutions that help workers climb into the middle class and stay there are easy to talk about, but hard to implement. >> reporter: it may not solve all the problems, but a rapidly growing economy is a good place to start when it comes to creating middle class jobs. a tight labor market makes it possible for workers to demand raises and better benefits. which is why former obama adviser jared bernstein thinks econic austerity ishe wrong medicine to take right now. >> you have public governments across europe and the united states sort of pulling out their fiscal supports too soon and that's hurting the middle class. >> reporter: of course conservatives consider bloated public spending a burden that threatens long-run economic growth which would hurt the middle class. and that's part of the problem, there are sharp differences over the b
